Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is motivation in school-settings. The teacher should be able to assess and to influence (change) learning motivation of his/her students/pupils. The theoretical starting point will be created with Extended Cognitive Model of School Motivation. On the basic of the above mentioned model relevant motives, both intrinsic and extrinsic one, will be influenced. It concerns the following topics: intrinsic motivation and self-determination theory, flow experiences and interest on one hand and nAch, nAff, nPow on the other hand. Attention will also be paid to Reference Norms.
Teacher can on the basic of his/her individual reference norms not only reduce anxiety and fear, but also to enhance Hope of Success. We assume students (teachers) will be able to apply more general motivational principles in school-settings.
